360/360 swap issue

Hello folks. my Uncle has given me a 1956 F-100 that used to belong to my grandfather. The truck is show quality. The motor in it was a stock rebuilt LA 360 that was from a 1981 Ramcharger. The reason I say was is that we thought we had a cracked head issue, turned out to be internal so the replacement motor is an LA block cast#930 crank cast#716 Magnum head cast#671 1.92/1.625 valves. Bored 0.40 over decked with flat top pistons.Cam is 214/224 @.50 444/466 lift. Eddy 7577 intake and Holley Ultra 650 DP.Dyno #'s are 402 HP @ 4900 and 438 Torq @4300. And will sit in front of a 727 TF. I am learning this motor as I go. I reside about 400 miles from were the rig and motor/installer are and so I'm looking forward to picking up my new Fodge.The Installer says the Alt is up against the magnum head and will need a different replacement to get the belts and pulley to line up he said they are off by an 1/8th inch. He stated that eddy 7577 intake only has one coolant boss not two so he will need to put in a Tee for the heater hose and TCS. The installer is not the builder and he dose not want to put a new tap on the intake.Sorry for being long winded. Have any of you guys ran into some of these issues and do you know of any others that may be to come?? I've been reading till I've become crossed eyed learning what I can. Thanks for any help you can share.

Correct one heater hose comes off the intake manifold but the Edelbrock 7577 rpm performer only has one boss or port so the installer needs to put a Tee in so the heater hose and temp coolant sensor can be attached.This is a LA block with Magnum heads.

I used one of the extra radiator taps for the return from the heater core and the send is off the water pump
if u have these taps on the rad. Use one wrks for me
also on my eddy air gap manifold I was able to keep the a/c with slight tilt to the compressor
taping the aluminum manifold jst any where can be problimatic with no reinforcement at the tap sight could be bad

This manifold shows two spots for temp sensor.

If yours doesn't look at a thermostat housing spacer and install with the port under the thermostat.

Scroll down on that Edelbrock link and you will see the intake manifold That I have #7577.I put in a brass Tee and called it good. Now I'm dealing with a broken oil dip stick tube. Broke off in the block.My first attempt to remove it will be using and easy out.I would welcome any feed back on dealing with that. This is my Fodge.

After removing the alt and fuel pump I was able to extract the broke off dipstick tube with a #4 easy out. Came out real easy. Next project will be kick down linkage.
